THE CHICKEN SISTERS
Author: KJ Dell'Antonia
Three generations. Two chicken shacks. One recipe for disaster.
In tiny Merinac, Kansas, Chicken Mimi’s and Chicken Frannie’s have spent a century vying to serve up the best fried chicken in the state–and the legendary feud between their respective owners, the Moores and the Pogociellos, has lasted just as long. No one feels the impact more than thirty-five-year-old widow Amanda Moore, who grew up working for her mom at Mimi’s before scandalously marrying Frank Pogociello and changing sides to work at Frannie’s. Tired of being caught in the middle, Amanda sends an SOS to Food Wars, the reality TV restaurant competition that promises $100,000 to the winner. But in doing so, she launches both families out of the frying pan and directly into the fire.....
The last thing Brooklyn-based organizational guru Mae Moore, Amanda's sister, wants to go home to Kansas. But when her career implodes, helping the fading Mimi's look good on Food Wars becomes Mae's best chance to reclaim the limelight-even if doing so pits her against Amanda and Frannie's. Yet when the family secrets become public knowledge, the sisters must choose: will they fight with each other of for their heritage?

There's the Texan athlete, an upper-crust son of a French mother, a dirt-poor Midwestern fly-fisherman, an orphaned fashion designer, and a ravishingly beautiful female fencer. Each choose to answer the call of duty, for secret reasons of their own. The bond immediately, an their group code name: Dragonfly.
Taking on false identities, they're dropped behind enemy lines in German-occupied Paris and embedded among the highest Nazi ranks. Soon begins the cat-and-mouse game of staying under the radar, where one false move could be fatal.
THE WHOLE TOWN'S TALKING
Author: Fannie Flagg
Elmwood Springs, Missouri, is a small town like any other, but something strange is happening at the cemetery. Still Meadows, as it’s called, is anything but still. Original, profound, The Whole Town’s Talking, a novel in the tradition of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town and Flagg’s own Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven, tells the story of Lordor Nordstrom, his Swedish mail-order bride, Katrina, and their neighbors and descendants as they live, love, die, and carry on in mysterious and surprising ways.
Lordor Nordstrom created, in his wisdom, not only a lively town and a prosperous legacy for himself but also a beautiful final resting place for his family, friends, and neighbors yet to come. “Resting place” turns out to be a bit of a misnomer, however. Odd things begin to happen, and it starts the whole town talking.
